TCM Tuning

Would it be worth doing with stock trans tunes? Im getting my truck tuned via EFI Live saturday by a local shop with tunes up to 100hp. They offered to do 5 tunes and the tcm for $450.

TCM tunes are wet dreams. Amazing how many tuning masters are out there that have no idea is going on with the Allison.

So I guess the best thing to do will be ECM tuning alone and let the tranny do its thing..
The price they gave me was 5 tunes and TCM. I'm thinking without TCM tuning it will be around 250. Id love to have Robs tuning but this is closest to me and I need this truck every day.

Lol...

OP, the only reason you need to change the TCM tune is to raise the rpm limit/shift points to keep a larger turbo in its power band. Otherwise your just pissing in the wind...
